CADWorx Command of the Week [Piping Rules – Apply Size Rule]

In CADWorx Plant we can apply Size rule for placing the component with respect to the main size in plant configuration or respect to spec viewer

Go to CADWorx Plant Setup > Piping Rules > Select pulldown menu in “Apply Size Rule”

By Default the value would be “No”

Available options: No, Automatic, Show Options

Sets the system to check the size of components when components are inserted.

  • No: Does not check the size of components when components are inserted.
  • Automatic: Checks the size of components and it won’t places sizes from Main size when components are inserted.
  • Show Options: Displays option prompts for inserting components based on the component being connected to.
